Air Fryer Beetroot Chips Recipe

Here's how you can make healthy beetroot chips from the comfort of your kitchen:


  • 2 medium-sized beetroots
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Equipment Required:

  • Air fryer
  • Mandoline slicer or sharp knife
  • Mixing bowl


  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (180°C). Preheating ensures that the air fryer is at the appropriate temperature to uniformly cook the beetroot chips.
  • To remove dirt and debris, thoroughly wash the beetroots under running water.
  • Use a vegetable peeler or knife to peel the beetroots.
  • Slice the beetroots into thin, consistent rounds using a mandolin or a sharp knife. Cooking is more uniform when the thickness is consistent.
  • Add the beetroot slices to a mixing dish.
  • Drizzle olive oil over the beetroot slices, making sure each is gently covered.
  • Season the beetroot slices with salt and pepper to your liking. For added flavour, use garlic powder, paprika, or dried herbs.
  • After preheating, place the seasoned beetroot slices in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Refrain from packing the basket too full, as this may impede enough airflow and cause the chips to cook unevenly.
  • To guarantee that the beetroot chips cook uniformly, you may need to cook them in batches.
  • After the air fryer has been preheated, insert the basket.
  • For roughly 10 to 12 minutes, set the air fryer to cook at 350°F (180°C). The thickness of your beetroot slices and the particular model of your air fryer might affect how long they need to cook.
  • Using tongs, carefully turn the beetroot slices halfway through cooking to make sure they cook through on both sides.
  • Watch the beetroot chips while they air fry. They ought to get crispy and a little browned on the edges.
  • If some of the chips are done before the others, you may take them out of the air fryer and keep frying the chips that are left until they have the right crispness.
  • After cooking, take the beetroot chips out of the air fryer and place them on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb any extra oil.
  • To get even more crunch, let the chips cool for a few minutes before serving.
  • Savour your homemade air fryer beetroot chips as a tasty and nourishing snack or side dish.
